The dramatic landscapes of New Zealand invite adventure. From the volcanic geothermal regions and rolling green hills of the North Island, to the glacier-carved valleys and mountain ranges of the South Island, the activities on offer are diverse. Hiking in New Zealand - or tramping as it's called here - ranges from gentle rainforest walks and waterfall trails, to alpine terrain and glacier heli-hikes. Ski holidays are popular in the alpine regions, particularly Queenstown and Wanaka, and mountain biking is offered throughout the country with a well-managed network of bike trails spanning New Zealand. Kayaking and sailing the Marlborough Sounds and Bay of Islands in the north are other drawcards for the active traveller. Whatever your adventure, include accommodation in one of New Zealand's Luxury Lodges or unique Homesteads for an unforgettable journey.
